Kefir and chia pudding


This post is for my friend Maria and is my current favourite breakfast!  And it is well worth the five minutes it takes to prepare the night before. It really is quite similar to some other chia puddings that I have posted about where I have used Greek (i.e. strained) yoghurt, but in this one I am using kefir. I love the combinations of the flavours with kefir, tahini, chia seeds, figs and raspberries.  But you can do the recipe with any combination of fruit or dried fruit.  Do what feels good to you or use what you have in the house! The critical elements are the kefir, the tahini and the chia seeds.  The rest is up to you. And with the kefir, use as much or as little as you want. Less kefir will lead to a more solid pudding, and more will obviously lead to a thinner one.



3 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon tahini
2 dried figs
6 raspberries (fresh or frozen)
100-150 mls kefir


Place chia seeds in bowl which will be used for breakfast
Add tahini to bowl
Roughly chop the figs and place in bowl
Add raspberries to bowl
Mix all ingredients thoroughly
Add kefir to bowl and mix well
Place in refrigerator overnight
Eat for breakfast and enjoy!!
